Sunday Afternoon (4 Comments) (link)

As you can imagine there's a lot of XBOX 360 chatter going on at the moment. ArsTechnica have their thoughts, as do TeamXbox, HardOCP, Anandtech, TomsHardware, Bit-Tech, ByteSector and Hexus. IGN have a FAQ, while FileShack have a video featuring Xbox engineers talking about the new console. 1UP.com have a developer roundtable, talking to various games developers about their XBOX 360 plans. Some hardware and games info on ChicagoTribune. The question of backwards compatability is considered on ArsTechnica, while Betanews report that the iPod will connect with the new Xbox. CNet discovered that the game demos are running on Mac G5's. There's talk of the new Xbox being watercooled, but it actually seems to employ a (now fairly conventional) heatpipe system. There's a blurry capture of the cooler here on HardOCP, but we're still after more details on that side of things. Of course, Team OCAU is wondering if it can be used for Folding!

AusGamers have a Quake 4 teaser video, thanks James.

Xbit report on the memory market in May. We are going to discuss the situation with the memory prices, the changes in the market shares, new established joint projects and of course, new products that might be of interest to hardware enthusiasts and overclockers, as well as to ordinary users.

From White Rhino: The MPAA has sued and subsequently caused the shutdown - or soon to be shutdown - of six major TV torrent sites. Info here and here, forum thread here.

There's a lot of talk about an iPod going boom, but the lesson is really more about not opening lithium-ion batteries, which burn in air and release nasty fumes.

XYZ report on a gaming company boycotting booth babes because they feel they draw attention away from the games themselves. They plan on doing this not by refusing to have booth babes, but instead by hiring ten unattractive woman to work their booth. Yeah, great marketing idea, guys.
